The brass insert is for aswangs. They still believe in aswangs on the island of Panay today. Usually, the whole blade is made of brass or copper, but on longer blades a piece of copper/brass is...

Indo/Malay?

Gentlemen,
This is totally out of my area of collecting so I'm asking help in identifying these 5 very small daggers. I thought about posting this in the keris forum but these aren't exactly keris....

No, not necessarily. Treskantos is the term used for a 3-sided dagger, but not limited to Pangasinan. Treskantos blade profiles can be found throughout Luzon and the Visayas. The popularity of the...

Greetings,
The OP's sword appears to be from the Kinaray-a speaking people of South/Southwest Panay Island. The scabbard is typical of Ilonggo swords of Iloilo with the leather covered throat and...

Talibung/talibong is always spelled with an "L." Only an outsider with spell it with an "R." It's just that most people who don't speak either Kinaray-a or Akeanon would not understand their peculiar...

Interesting sword...too bad there isn't a scabbard to help identify its origin.

To me it looks like a terciada blade mounted in a Tagakaolo (or possibly B'laan) kakatua hilt.

Sorry I can't be specific since most of the silat systems within Bangsamoro are family sytems with no specific names and just referred to as just "silat" and most often is not taught outside...

Rick,
Not necessarily. But in Sulu the fighting art there is what most people would call silat and there are several different family systems there. Much like in the Visayas and Luzon the fighting...

The ukkil on the seki kura hilt and on the scabbard looks Sulu...I'm leaning towards Yakan and not Tausug.

The orientation on how a kris or kalis is worn (whether "tachi" or "katana" style) is...

Interesting kris indeed! Looks like a Maranao kris in Sulu dress. This doesn't surprise me. If you have any of the early, old Kris Cutlery Sandata catalogs from the early 1990's when Cecil Quirino...

Battara,
As I said, the barung is not a traditional Maranao weapon. However, the Maranao are making them today to fill in a certain niche (i.e. tourist or non-classic sword collectors.) Finding a...

Nirghosa,
I have no doubt about your Maranao attribution to your barung. It is that fabulous okir carving on the scabbard that gives it away. Maranao okir has a distinct look very similar to Sulu...

Nice old bolo. Bolos from Luzon all look very similar and their scabbards even more so. Tooled leather scabbards are common throughout Luzon. Batangas would be a good guess, however, typically a bolo...

Nice score on the binangon, Spunjer! I'll call it a tinegre since it has the figural anito head. Either way it's Ilonggo so I wouldn't call it a sanduko.

As for the floral motif found on swords on...
